Houston (CBS Houston)–Aggie fan, the 2014 season might look a lot different as you lose Johnny Football to the NFL draft and now being reported, possibly your head coach.

The Los Angeles Daily News reported that Texas A&M head coach Kevin Sumlin has emerged as the top target for USC, on Thursday.

Sumlin has quickly become the hottest coaching option for any reeling team to turn their program around after his success stories at the University of Houston and currently at A&M. His overall record is 53-21 as a head coach.

Personally, the most impressive accolade was Sumlin in his first year at A&M. As the program moved to the SEC many thought they couldn’t survive without the Big 12 and would fail in the storied conference. Instead they finished 11-2, his quarterback Johnny Manziel became the first-ever freshman to win the Heisman Trophy and he gave the Aggies new-life.

As for the Trojans, USC fired Lane Kiffin after the team lost to Arizona State 62-41 on Sept. 28. Ed Orgeron was asked to step-in as interim coach and although he is up for consideration as the head coach, according to reports he is not expected to get the position.

The Trojans are 3-1 since Orgeron stepped in.

ESPN NFL analyst Jon Gruden is also reported to have been reached by the Trojans.
